[ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: president obama meantime, continuing down the path you can't trust governor romney. that he is misleading american people, imploring to give him another four years to get the economy on track. now is not the time to be changing horses. >> after four years of president you know me. you may not a
? >> yes, exactly. we're taking your calls at 1-800-steph-1-2. we're going to be checking in with john fugelsang who is in manhattan. his power did not go out yesterday. but i guess everything south of time square everything lost power. >> you think about the weather and the actual impact of the storm, but i went through hurricane andrew in 1992 having grown up in miami, you go through a lot of these kinds of storms. when they are vicious like this there's really no way to prepare other than to hunker down and get your supplies in place. but you don't think about the downed trees and how long the power might be out. >> right. >> because the crews have to get to the sources, and that's difficult for them to do to restore power, and you think about the inconveniences of that. with andrew we were out of power for about three weeks, which is when it is really, really hot in miami people had to stay cool and in virginia where they have snow, you have to think about no heat. >> that's right. >> imagine that without any heat. >> a lot of buildings are heated with steam the
morning and welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> and i'm zoraida sambolin. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. we begin with the latest on the aftermath of the superstorm hurricane ire hurricane sandy. most buses are up and running again and they are free of charge. but most of lower manhattan still has no power and temperatures are dipping into the 30s and 40s. >> and there are no heartbreaking picture as long the jersey shore barrier islands. houses picked up, some just buried in the sand and governor chris christie who toured the destruction with president obama said some parts of the shore may never look the same again. >> the death toll reached 124 people with 56 in the united states. at least 28 in new york. and close to 5 million customers are still waiting for the power to come back on. >> cnn has the entire disaster zone covered this morning. our correspondents spanned out across lower manhattan and all up and down the jersey shore. >> first, the economic capital of our country is slowly getting back to normal this morning even while facing extreme damage. power outage
at that point, economics was becoming important. up until that point, i assumed that lor--john maynard keynes had said everything there was to say about economics. but once we got stagnation and inflation at the same time, it was quite clear that someone had to revise economics. and although i knew i couldn't do it myself, i--at least i wanted to understand what was going on. so i took the year off, and i came to washington at the american enterprise institute, and mr. ford had just lost the election, so that laurence silberman and bob bork and nino scalia all came out of government. and before going on to their other careers as judges or as professors, they spent something like six months at the american enterprise institute. and we had no cafeteria then, we had no lunchroom, so we--the four of us brown-bagged it every day and just talked. then jude wanniski came down on a fellowship--he was writing his book then--and he started talking to us about supply-side economics, which was very interesting and about which we knew nothing, and those were a very stimulating peri--that was a very stimul
points. in sunday the state's republican governor john kasich said romney has the momentum. >> i believe right now we are currently ahead. internals show us currently ahead. honestly think that romney's going to carry ohio and you know i haven't been saying this. i now believe it's going to happen. >> reporter: romney canceled a campaign event tomorrow in new hampshire. his campaign is not overly alarmed by all the cancelations because he's focusing instead >>> we are looking at dense fog around the bay area looking toward coit tower. the giant orange as the giants have won the world series. the fog is going to lift today. temperatures in the 40s and 50s. seeing delays at sfo for over an hour because of the fog. 70s, low 80s inland. and 60s coast side. next couple days looking nice. slight chance of showers on wednesday. >>> the approaching hurricane is forcing hundreds of thousands of traveler tos to change their plans. we'll show how long it could take for airline schedules to return to normal. >>> also, what you need to do if your flight has been canceled. >>> and for the
locations? what about voters who lost everything, including their photo i.d.? joe johns from washington joining me now. if anyone knows these questions, you do. do you think the election will be postponed ? what will happen in states like new jersey where many people are dealing with other things rather than worrying about getting to the polls? >> it's hard to say that an election like this will be postpone postponed. there are so many states in the united states that simply were not affected. and if you were to postpone for one state or two states, you would have what would be called an equal protection challenge and you could go to court and fight it. so, what's much more likely to happen, carol, is that the places that have problems -- we're talking about counties and specific precincts that have determined they have a problem. they'll do something to fix it, whether they'll move the polling place or there are some states that even have laws or rules where you can, you know, incrementally move the date or time, something along those lines. there are a lot of different options they ca
event of the day in a county that senator john mccain won in 2008 with 60% of the vote. kristen welker is traveling with the president. she joins us now. as i mentioned, lima, 60% of that vote went to john mccain. is the president tailoring his message different than what we heard today, kristen? >> reporter: good afternoon, tamron. i think we will hear a similar message in lima we heard during the president's first two stops today. he's talking about the fact he had improvements and the latest unemployment report to make that argument, but he's really focusing on the auto bailout, the auto industry specifically slamming mitt romney for his recent claims that jeep is shipping jobs to china. the president said the companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. it's worth noting that papers in this area have come out and said that those claims are false. the romney campaign continues to stand by their ad that says the auto bailout will lead it to shipping jobs overseas. that's the big focus today. why? it's an issue that resonates with the voters here's in ohio. one out
. good morning, i'm john berman. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. we have a field of reporters covering the aftermath of sandy from every angle. rob marciano in new york city. dan lothian and paul steinhouser standing by in washington, d.c. and richard quest is also out there for us. >> with 1/3 of the people in new york city, 2 million people here without power. transportation is at a virtual standstill at a few time where few people have cars, not to mention the property and destux. 80 homes were consumed by fire in keeps. recovery from super storm sandy will be a mammoth job. rob marciano is in the chelsea neighborhood here in new york city. he is joining us live. rob, i was there live yesterday. what was amazing was the exodus of people coming out where it is black right now. many people moving uptown to find power, food and information. >> reporter: yeah, it is stunning. when you go from the typical lit northern manhattan area and come south of 30th street, it just goes completely dark. it is something i have never seen in new york city. the people, the differences in how people re
the sniper shootings that left ten people dead in our area. >> now the ex-wife of convicted sniper john alan mohamed is speaking out about the attacks. mildred mohamed talks about how she is moving on from hardship to find hope. >> october 23rd atf knocked on my door to take me to the police station for questioning and that is when they told me they were going to name john as the sniper. that was also when mildred mohamed would learn her ex-husband was out to murder her and the ten innocent people who were killed were just a cover. >> so that he could come in as a grieving father and get custody of the children. >> reporter: mildred says john alan mohamed was psychologically abusive to her. after she left him he disappeared with their three young children. when she finally got them back a judge issued a restraining order against her ex-husband. mildred mohamed knew that if he saw her again he would kill her. >> he said you have become my enemy and as my enemy i will kill you. he said that right in my face. >> i think people would be surprised to know that other people have attacked you. >> t
, john heilemann. msnbc political analyst and executive editor of msnbc.com, richard wolffe. msnbc political analyst, jonathan alter of bloomberg view, and msnbc political analyst and former dnc, karen finney, hopefully joining us shortly. john, i go to you first. in terms of sandy being an inflection point, game changer, if you will, a term we do not toss around lightly, are we -- is it -- is it a game changer? can you prognosticate that far? do you think the president is stronger coming out of the sandy response as a candidate? >> look, there's no question that if you think about this storm and what it's done to the media environment over the course of the week, it's blackout coverage. so the president's been in that coverage. and to some extent, much driven by the storm but he's -- he's there, he's the president on screen. governor romney has been nowhere. he's just -- it's not his fault. he's just not part of this conversation. he doesn't have anything to say about it. he doesn't have a role to play. so if you're a challenger, running a presidential campaign, in the last week t
's bring in john feary and david goodfriend. good to see you, gentlemen. good morning. david, let me ask you about mitt romney as appeal to hillary clinton veeters. could he pick off moderate democrats? >> no. in order to be a hillary clinton voter you see the world a lot differently than mitt romney says he does. i think the divisiveness the romney campaign has shown economically and frankly when it comes to women's issues, it's going to drive people back into the obama camp. it's an interesting thing, because he may very well have had a shot at some of the moderate democratic voters in ohio, but i think his campaign has stumbled in that it never shown itself to be an open, big tent for moderates. it's still very conservative, severely conservative as mitt romney might say, and taehat's going to drive hillary clinton voters back into the fold with the democratic party. i'm privacy in internal p polls in ohio. i can't speak about the specifics, and i'll smiling. the margin is better. ohio is much more in play, especially when the consider how early voting is outperforming in the heavily
surrogates, john sununu made some comments when he suggested that colin powell was endorsing the president because of his race. sununu put out a statement saying he believes powell endorsed the president because of his policies. it's not just the tough talk on the campaign trail that we're seeing that is causing things to get a little rocky out here. there is also the prospect of a major storm heading to the east coast. what forecasters have dubbed frankenstorm. it has already caused the romney campaign to reschedule on sunday. no word on when it will be rescheduled. >> thanks very much. cnn's new poll shows a very tight race in the must-win state of ohio. president obama is at 50% and mitt romney is at 46%. i'm joined now by gloria borger and ryan lizza. thanks, guys. who's got the edge right now and we're getting closer and closer. >> it's hard to say. our head is exploding with all of these polls. but if you look at our -- let's take the state of ohio, which is of course so key to both campaigns. it's hard to see how romney would win the presidency without winning ohio, although they no
for the candidates. their wives, the former president bill clinton, the house speaker john boehner all campaigning down to the wire. cnn is covering their every move. our correspondents are in key locations in critical states. any one of which could ultimately decide who will be the next president of the united states. we're going to -- let's go to colorado right now. mitt romney is speaking there but jim acosta is there setting the stage. tell us what's going on. >> reporter: mitt romney just arrived here just a few moments ago. he has been delivering his closing argument to the crowd here and he's been doing that all day long. waking up in new hampshire, moving on to iowa and here in colorado for two stops. he has been going after the president on that new unemployment data, he has also been talking about what he would do if he's elected president. talking about cutting the budget, eliminating the president's health care law and tapping into domestic energy resources. i have to tell you the one message that they have been hitting hard in the last final days of this campaign, they have been going
john bridge. inner loop looks great leaving the toll road heading back towards 270. 66 eastbound, light traffic v no problems to report continuing in towards the beltway. >>> thanks. look at this video. snow shoe resort in west virginia got more than 2 feet of snow from superstorm sandy but the resort will not be opening early. officials said they could open for skiers this weekend but it's too dangerous. there are widespread power outages and the surrounding area is in a state of emergency. they have other things to deal with right now. >>> if you see a lot of snowplows around d.c. this morning i don't think there's a blizzard coming. it's just a drill. they're testing its readiness for winter storms. the dry run is to help with training of more than 1,000 members of the team at the public works department. >>> metro bus drivers caught nodding off and sleeping on the job, some while they were behind the wheel. now, according to the transit agency 67 drivers were caught between january of 2010 and february 2012 and some were working as many as 16 to 20 hours a day. the washington examin
the government, which has been a great operationally. i mean, john and i can talk about things and share with our colleagues in a way that we were not able to do, our counterparts were not able to do before september 11th and the patriots. the problem there, of course, is the more people who have access to this information, which is what we want, to give a real-life scenario, what you're talking about, a terrorism investigation in the united states, you're looking at it in the united states, you need to have integration sharing from the cia and their overseas collectors who are getting information about let's say the pakistan end of that network to the fbi headquarters who are getting that information and then sharing it with the fbi folks in the field, whoever that cell is and the local law enforcement folks who are actually out there in the streets. so all these people need to know the information it will be fully effective. the problem is, of course, that raises the possibility of that that affirmation will be compromised. and, you know, we saw that. he was able to get access to an amazing amo
correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an age divide, if you look at likely voters in ohio. among voters under the age of 50, there's a big gap, 18 point lead for the president among voters under the age of 50. a smaller lead for governor romney among voters 50 and older so the republicans are withstanding the attacks on the ryan budget, the medicare attacks, but
with african-americans. and john sununu on behalf of the romney campaign talking about colin powell's endorsement of barack obama and saying, well, i think because they're the same race. he later backed off that. it seems like everybody's always looking to pounce on any hint of racial phraseology, racial, you know, playing the race card as we like to put it. >> yeah. and i think, look, we have the first african-american president that we've had in our history, you know, and some of those feelings in the country have if anything intensified. i would polling would suggest over the past four years as people have, you know, have assessed his performance and race, obviously, comes into that. >> should we jump on these kinds of comments? >> no. i mean -- ideally i think, you know, to the extent that we cover race as an issue we should cover it as a serious issue and not jump on -- >> gaffe of the day? top of the hour? >> exactly. >> i think there's a strategy behind these comments. i mean, the white men that romney needs to build this campaign on, to win, i think this was a dog whistle to
for having me. host: our look cut this topic will continue with the republican strategist john turner and then later with. >> as we approach the election day, c-span is asking middle and high school students to send a message to the president. in a short video students what i ask the question was the most important issue the president is facing in 2013. the studentcam video competition is open to kids aged 6-12. the deadline is january 18, 2013. find out more at studentcam.org. >> these are the stories that your textbooks left out. they are great stories in american history. the first program came up to 50 sale. before the mayflower sel there were french. they made wine. they had the good sense of to come in june instead of the winter. they were completely wiped out by the spanish. an indian woman was captured by the spanish. in the middle of the night she killed her captor. she realized she could get a county for the scouts. she went back to boston and was a hero. they erected a statue in her honor. >> live sunday at noon eastern with kenneth davis, on both tv on c-span2.

john delaney for his deep understanding of job creation. he'll be "an unusually effective congressman." delaney: it's not about politics. it's about doing what's right to help the middle class. i'm john delaney, and i approve this message. >>> it's 6:15 right now. if you see snowplows around the stadium this morning don't panic. the district is holding a dry run to make sure crews are ready for winter weather. about 700 plow drivers will hit their regular routes while the rest of the snow team will make sure they're up to date on what needs to be done the next time it snows. >> a live look outside, you can see the washington monument off in the distance there. it's friday. so it's all good. yeah, we don't need any of that winter weather right now. >> i feel like we're going to get it soon. i don't know why. >> because you know what? because it felt wintery yesterday. >> maybe that's it and we had that crazy weather. >> and west virginia is getting inundated with it. >> it's close. >> and the problem is i don't care how many snowplows are out, people always act like we've never seen sn
for an extension of the early voting period. doesn't look like that's going to happen. john zarrella is just north of miami. you voted yesterday before the last day. how did it go? >> reporter: yeah, and i probably should have voted a few days earlier than that as well. it was about two hours and ten minutes from just about where i'm standing now to the point where i was in and out and done voting. but public service announcement out there, for anybody in broward county who was planning to come here today, you might want to think about coming now, because the line is actually down, if you can imagine, from where it was a little while ago. it's probably still a three and a half hour wait, but it was just over four hours a while ago. so as we move towards the noon hour, it might be a good time to come on out here and vote. and as you mentioned, originally, four years ago, it was 14 days, but the state legislature cut it to only eight days of early voting. so thus these tremendous long lines that we're seeing here on the last day of early voting, and a lot of people are concerned that when it comes t
, john heilemann. willie is coming in the room right now. >> willie sort of sauntering in. >> he is. wow! got a lot of presidential polls to get to, and we will. >> i tell you what, important ones that really narrow the focus of this race. >> right. first we're going to start with the aftermath of sandy. the united states pledging quick relief for the millions of victims of the hurricanes. today president obama is scheduling to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. this morning the associated press reports the storm killed at least 50 people. there are more than 8.2 million households still without power across 17 states. and many of the outages could last beyond election day. between damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same c
's got a live report for us from bellevue. john's got a lack at some of the other stories making news this morning. good morning. >> this morning, people in breezy point in queens are literally picking up the pieces of their lives. at least 110 neighborhood homes the burned in that massive fire during sandy. new york governor andrew cuomo toured the devastation yesterday. he spoke to victims and promised them the tight-knit community will rebuild. >>> we have some new developments is on stories we've been following this morning. the university of southern california has lifted a lockdown it put in place following a late-night shooting at a campus halloween party. the school department of public safety says shots were fired. following an argument between two men last night at usc's main campus in los angeles. one of the men was critically wounded. another three people were also shot. their injuries, not life threatening. two suspects are now in custody. >>> on the road again, president obama and mitt romney return to the campaign trail today with just five days left until election day.
john boehner's car. i'll walk mitch mcconnell's dog. i'll do whatever is required to get this done. >> president obama heads to new hampshire a bit later today for a stop in nashua. vice president biden is scheduled to hold an event in lynch burg, virginia. >>> now we go to ohio where nbc's ron mott is on that bus tour with paul ryan. hello to you ron again. where are you in the many stops on that bus tour today? >> reporter: hey there, alex. i've got to get my back stretched out. we've got five stops as you mentioned here today. three more tomorrow. eight in total. 400 plus miles over the next two days with paul ryan. right now we're in janesville, ohio. just wrapping up a speech here. a lot of people are wondering why so much attention on ohio? this state may be the one that decides who wins this election. it's probably more important for governor romney than perhaps for the president because no republican candidate alex as you know has ever won the white house without winning here. so we expect to see the campaign tours between now and election day that governor romney or paul r

, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch. he cited the president's stance on climate change as the major reason. he writes, quote, one believes a woman's right to choose should be protected for future generations. one does not. that difference, given the likelihood of supreme court vacancies, weighs heavily on my decision. one recognizes marriage equality as consistent with america's march of freedom. one does not. i want our president to be on the right side of history. one sees climate change as an urgent problem. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics. well said by a savvy mayor of new york. he is so smart. >> the guy is very savvy. >> he waited until now. >> correct. i had somebody use the following phrase with me, he
. but you know, four years ago we saw john mccain and sarah palin come here to pennsylvania the last minute. we have seen other republicans like bob dole in '96 and president obama as well make pitches here in pennsylvania. they were not successful either. fred? i guess we'll find out on november 6th, right? >> just three days away. appreciate it. we'll check back with you throughout the afternoon. >>> it has been five days since superstorm sandy and the gas crunch in new jersey is so severe that the governor there is calling for gas rationing. plus, will polling places in new jersey be up and running in time for the election? we'll see what's being done. to . while energy development comes with some risk, north america's natural gas producers are committed to safely and responsibly providing generations of cleaner-burning energy for our country, drilling thousands of feet below fresh water sources within self-contained well systems. and, using state-of-the-art monitoring technologies, rigorous practices help ensure our operations are safe and clean for our communities and the environment.
them himself. john mccain even went as far as to blast president obama on the benghazi attack. one other issue is romney's thoughts on fema. here he is yesterday. >> [ inaudible ]? >> romney: why -- >> why don't you answer any questions about fema. >> nothing to say. more bill coming up after the break. highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart.

where john kerry peaked in 2004, the first debate. they both had a first great debate, got a great bounce, and it dissipated -- >> slowly dissipated. >> -- over the course of the campaign, and they couldn't get the wind back. >> i'm not sure obama is peaking at the best moment, but the campaign, particularly in ohio, seems to have reached a plateau, this small -- >> why do you come with this debbie downer -- >> let me finish. >> are you irish? >> i'm jewish, close. >> dim scenario. >> if you look at ohio, it has narrowed in the last couple weeks, but it's hit this 4% mark and it hasn't changed -- >> let's go to -- >> obama steady -- >> let's go by what obama thinks -- not obama, romney thinks. i think he has done more than we know. here is romney with eric fern strom. if he thinks he's winning, why is he throwing these mud balls like this guy is hanging around with chavez? why he throwing mud balls about jeeps going to china when it's not true? why is he heading to pennsylvania? i just checked with neil, one of the top consultants in pennsylvania, he said four points to six points.
